    Thanks for posting @TexxasGT350

    Good video!

    8:10 he says more then 760hp and more then 625 torque. Probably a mistake.

    9:00 The blower can do at least 20 pounds of boost.

    Also it beats $200,000 and $300,000 cars on the road course.

    Man this thing is going to be incredible.

    Only bad thing about the video is Jim Owens lack of knowledge about the Dodge Demon.

    10.8 or better in the base GT500.

    If it does 10.7 on stock tires in pretty good conditions that would be great!

    Hellcat Redeye vs GT500 will make for some great races!

    I got a low 10 second vibe in the 1/4 mile with this car I bet because of the DCT; from his comment about how fast it is! Also since he is comparing it to the Demon and the fact that he has previously said "Venom kills Demons", Comparing it to the Demon makes you think of 9s in the 1/4 Im being too optimistic I'm sure but damn that would be badass especially if the car turns out to be underrated due to insurance purposes etc.

    If it beats the Hellcat Redeye in the quarter mile the car will be a absolute home run.

    No way it will run 9s though.

    I hope it beats the redeye he sure hyped it up and made it sound like it will! Its obviously too heavy for 9s with the power but that DCT I bet if it hooks will get it into the low 10s I feel Dodge Redeye owners could be in for an upset when it comes to how fast this car is.

    10.60's. DCT will be hard on stock tires

    Curious why he keeps saying the cftp wont run as good as the base in the 1/4. The tires are whats really going to make or break the ET, and better tires on CFTP, as well as lighter weight only help it.
    The downforce from the wing isnt that crazy at this level

    I read CFTP cars have 500lbs of downforce at 180mph and the base model with the hybrid wing/spoiler is 379lbs at 180mph. I don't know what it is at lower speeds but I assume this to be 1 reason as well as the CFTP models maybe having slightly different suspension tuning for the Track whereas the base models Id assume are more tuned for the 1/4 mile.

    The 379 downforce number is with the gurney flap. (Handling package)

    One of the best purchases I've ever made, my 10/9 build date is not soon enough.

    Because it will trap 160mph in the quarter.

    Just a joke.

    I bet it dives deep 10s with a good set of tires just like the redeye I believe dodge advertised it would run a 10.8 and guys are running 10.4s in perfect conditions. We already know it will at least do a 10.9 which will be right in redeye territory. In the video he said "Its Sub 11 and I'm not saying 10.9, I know what the number is. We are going to let the journalists come out and tell you, but its unbelievably quick!" Makes me think low-mid 10s on factory tires. I bet this car surprises everyone mainly because of the DCT!

    I actually believe he let the cat out of the bag of how much the CFTP weighs....

    You need to hop over to Yellow Bullet.
    No stock Demon has ran 9's......low 10's is more to the truth with a ton of glue being used.
    I doubt the GT500 will run with one on a glued track, but any other surface the Demon is history.

    Yes, 100% stock Demons have run 9s in the quarter.

    However you need good weather, rear seat delete, and a good driver.

    Most run 9.9 to 10.2 with a good driver and all the race goodies.

    On pump gas they are mid 10 cars.

    He did a double take at the CFTP to make sure it wasn’t the base when he was talking about how fast the car is in the quarter. Assuming CFTP is slower
